Painting Health Centre.

Institutional Painting in Toronto

COMPASE,  local Toronto Painters was awarded the commercial contract to paint the large interior of the Parkdale Community Health Centre. PCHC is a non-profit community health centre located in the Queen and Dufferin area of Toronto.
80% of the space had to be painted during business hours without a major interruption to the every day routine of the facility. This has to be a two month project, so the painters have to be able to integrate into the community of the centre and virtually become invisible.
The painters used were from Ecopainting. Their proven experience with eco-friendly coatings made them the right choice for this project.

Zero VOC paintThe paint used for all walls was Benjamin Moore’s new Waterbourne Eco Spec in Eggshell.
Eco Spec is the most environmentally friendly paint available for Commercial Projects. Like most new Benjamin Moore paints, adding colourants will not add VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) to the paint. As a result, facility managers can choose any colour without being concerned about the level of VOC. The low odour and its quick drying properties made this paint great for this health care facility.
For this project there was a main colour that was used for the main common areas. A combination of four different colours from the Affinity Color Collection was used for all rooms.

Painters found the paint very easy to work with. Painting behind filing cabinets, desks and medical equipment is easier, as two coats are possible within an hour or two. What makes this paint remarkable is the fact that over 40 rooms and common areas are painted during business hours, with not one incident or complaint by anyone so far.
One month into the project everything seems to be progressing smoothly at about 20% ahead of schedule.
